Chocolate and Pear Jam~
I have had some time on my hands~ And have perused blogs..I am always astounded at how a new post ..reminds me of a recipe I saw months before and promised myself to make and didn't..
It was the case when I landed at Jasmine's Blog~Right away the sound of this jam sounded decadent..and right away I remembered her beautiful blueberry chocolate jam..
So I tried the pear one..
I had a few pears on hand.. some fine chocolate..an orange..a lemon..etc..
And decided to try it~
Predicted for the canning day was for a beautiful cold crisp.. sunny .. day..in that fallish golden way afternoon..
And I was dying to try the new labels I had printed up~
They're so victorian looking~From the beautiful Blog The Vintage Moth..
I don't know if you have been ..if not the trip along the keyboard is worth it..
Ahh..Luscious Labels for Luscious Jam~
Confiture de poires et de chocolat~
1600 grams of pears,peeled,cored and chopped in cubes
1050 grams of sugar
Juice of 2 small oranges
Juice of 2 lemons
350 grams of dark chocolate 70% chopped.
Mix the pears and sugar and juices and bring to a boil for 1 minute,stirring occasionally.
Remove from stove.And add chocolate..MIx until melted and well combined.
Let cool room temp.
Then refrigerate 24 hrs.
The next day..rewarm and reheat on medium heat to 105 C.
Pack in sterilized jars .. leave 1/4 inch from top..and Hot water bath for 15 minutes.
Thank you Jasmin for this lovely ,new to me recipe~
I made a smaller recipe..less than half because I only had 3 pears 1 orange 1 lemon..It made these 3 jars..We figured out the equivalences.Next time I will be most certain to have the number of fruits required..too delish.
C'est un délice dit mon époux Jacques..(Et c'est vrai.)
We had small croissants .. warmed them a touch and placed some of this treasure atop.♥
